St. Paul Oktoberfest

Friday, September 8, 2023 - Saturday, September 9, 2023

St. Paul Oktoberfest held annually on the beautiful grounds of the Germanic-American Institute. Just like the Munich original, we celebrate in September when the weather is better!

Oktoberfest is synonymous with beer, and this year, we will have an even larger selection than ever. The iconic Paulaner beer is imported directly from Munich and our local brewer, Utepils, is expertly crafted in Minneapolis. We’ll also feature an array of foods, from German and Austrian favorites Gerhard’s bratwurst, Aki’s pretzels, RJ’s Meats Currywurst and Burbach’s potato pancakes to international fare as well. With non-stop entertainment and fun for the whole family, it’s a two-day celebration of German food, beer, and culture!

Friday, September 8 | 4–10 PM
Saturday, September 9 | 10 AM–10 PM
